Two Sept. 11 defendants delayed the start of their hearing Monday at Guantanamo when they refused to respond to questions from their judge in the case. Defense lawyers didn't say what prompted the silent protest by self-proclaimed terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and one of five co-defendants at the military tribunal on the US base in Cuba.
Their silence Monday delayed by about an hour the start of a four-day hearing on pretrial motions for the five prisoners charges in the death penalty case. The judge eventually granted the changes without statements from the men. (AP)
